Positive Reviews

Walking Distance to Tourist Sites

Guests appreciated how they could reach well-known tourism sites in the area, such as the old and new Houses of Parliament and the Portrait Gallery, on foot. The proximity made it easy to explore freely without depending on taxis or their own cars.

Personable Staff Members

Comments from guests mentioned how the staff characteristically addressed them by their first names and seemed genuinely welcoming with their interactions. Furthermore, the staff worked hard to meet guests' needs throughout their stays, which made them want to return.

A Historic But Modern Setting

Guests frequently brought up how the hotel has an appealing Old-World style and seems steeped in history, but said it has been fully updated with today's conveniences. They liked the seamless pairing of historical architecture and creature comforts.

Negative Reviews

The Wi-Fi Service is Frustrating

Guests remarked that although the hotel has a free Wi-Fi option, it's not fast enough to allow for doing much online. Furthermore, guests were annoyed by being frequently asked via the login screen if they wanted to upgrade to the paid service, which they thought was quite pricey. Finally, guests said they had to login with the provided password every day, which they found cumbersome.

Extremely Limited and Expensive Parking

One of the biggest downsides of staying here is the parking, according to guests' feedback. They said the parking area is very small and they felt like they had to fight for spaces every time they needed them. Additionally, they thought the daily fee was too high.

Breakfast Needs Improvement

Guests said the breakfast cost a lot for what they received. Furthermore, there were comments about how the breakfast room layout is impractical and quickly gets crowded. Plus, staff have trouble keeping up with demand during busy periods.
